Georgia cornerback Brandon Boykin and offensive guard Cordy Glenn each confirmed Wednesday night that he will return for a senior season with the Bulldogs rather than enter the 2011 NFL draft.

Each of the two players had submitted paperwork for a round projection from the NFL draft advisory committee and was considering the jump.

“After meeting with my family and coaches, I was able to put a lot of things into perspective,” Boykin said in a statement. “First of all, I want to be part of getting Georgia back into the championship hunt. Coming back will also give me a chance to get my degree before entering the draft and another year of experience will only make me a better player as well.”

Boykin has 104 tackles and six interceptions during his college career. As Georgia’s kickoff return man, Boykin ranks No. 1 in UGA history with 1,813 career kickoff return yards and four touchdowns.
